Tales from Schwartzgarten: Marius and the Band of Blood Book 4 Press Reviews

It's a story with twists and turns every step of the way; it's all brilliantly described and has the reader on tenterhooks * Parents In Touch * Wow, what a great book. I've been reading this to my 8 year old boys and then secretly read ahead to finish it (dare I tell them?) ... The story is dark but in a humorous, Roald Dahlesque way, the characters and plot are well described and I felt drawn into the story quickly as it twisted and turned * English 4 - 11 * Fans of darker stories are going to eat this up whole. * ReadItDaddy * [This] is a tale of adventure and abduction, friendship and fearlessness. * Primary Times * Schwartzgarten is rich with stories * The Book Bag *

About Christopher William Hill

Christopher William Hill was born in Truro, in Cornwall - a little jaundiced, but that was to be expected in the grim days of the 1970s. His mother was a former nurse, so Christopher grew up with a copy of Black's Medical Dictionary to hand, which was ideal reading matter for an enthusiastic hypochondriac. He liked acting and putting on silly voices, and collecting ancient relics which he gathered in a large walk-in wardrobe that called his 'museum'. Christopher loves walking, ocean liners, airships, Victoriana and cake shops.
